Review of Where My Heart Breaks by Ivy Sinclair
Goodreads rating: 3/5 stars
my rating: OK
I got this book as a free copy from the publisher/author for an honest review. It took me awhile to get through it simply because other stuff kept coming up but it’s an otherwise quick read at 182 pages.
The story is about Kate, a 21-year-old that has apparently put her life into a tailspin in her last semester of college. Her parents give her an ultimatum: work the summer at her aunt’s bed and breakfast or they won’t pay for her senior year of college. And she better get a grip on her life—no drinking, no screwing around and no men.
But as soon as Kate arrives in Bleckerville she meets gorgeous Reed Black, the local bad boy that gets her panties all in a twist just by looking at her. She’s been warned to stay away by just about everyone she meets but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Reed. Even Reed warns her to say away because he’s bad news but the more she learns about him the more she feels they aren’t that different—with reputations they may or may not deserve covering who they really are underneath.
I liked the progression of the love story between Kate and Reed. It did start out fast with the whole love at first sight thing (or more like lust at first sight) but it was sweet as they both tried to work through their issues and admit their feelings.
I think my biggest complaint about the book was the constant mentioning of Kate’s last semester of school and how she screwed it all up with a guy named Trevor pushing her along. You never really do learn what happened, only hints. I got tired of hearing about Trevor every other page when the point was made in the first few chapters that she met a guy that was bad news and got her into trouble and screwed with her head. The book also dragged in a few places as Kate just pondered on and on about her life with Trevor and how she feels for Reed and whatever will she do? But things got more interesting towards the end as events started to happen quicker.
Not a bad quick summer read with some steamy love scenes and a sweet romance.
